“Gagging for it”

published 06/06/2006

Quick and straightforward, cheap to buy

A bit messy

Gaggia Cubika Espresso Machine I'd wanted one of those fancy espresso machines for years but could never really justify the expense. Having had various filter machines and cafetierres cluttering up cupboards I also wasn't convinced I'd get any use out of it. Last year, however, I finally gave up...

Not for me

Simple and easy to clean, apart from tank removal.

No crema; difficult tank removal.

This coffee maker fails practically every time to put a crema on an espresso. I tried numerous combinations of grind refinement, coffee amount, tamping, etc, but could not find one consistent combination. You could just about do it if you over-filled with coffee but then it was difficult to get...
